Façade Improvement Grants

Façade Improvement Grants

Commercial properties in Newport News continue to receive assistance from the Façade Improvement Grant (FIG) program through the provision of matching funds toward eligible façade improvement projects. The FIG program has been highly successful, and in 2016 leveraged over $483,000 in private investment and benefited over 20 properties City-wide. Over the life of the program, more than $2.3 million in Authority/City funds have been committed to Newport News property owners and businesses, who collectively invested over $5.8 million in private funds, fulfilling the FIG program’s mission to restore, sustain and improve commercial properties throughout the City.
